Writing to specific excel cells

Is it possible to write to an EXISTING file to one specified cell? I have tried using write to xl.vi as an example, but this rewites the entire file and I lose my old data.
I would greately appreciate any advice!

Take a look at the modified example. I show how to open an existing File and sheet. From your post I am not sure if you got that far or not.
Anyways you can then use Set Cell Value.vi SubVI to set the value of an 1 cell in the file and worksheet you just opened.
The example does that in a loop, thus re-writes all the data. However if you only want to set 1 cell, take the VI out of the loop, and use it independantly.
See how I changed the 0,0 cell after all the data is set.

  • Text Hyperlink from PDF (converted Word doc) to specific Excel cell in same Portfolio

    Good Morning,
    I have created a Word document with an embedded Excel sheet (both Office 2007) and created a text hyperlink within the document that points to a specific cell on a specific tab. My company wants to send our document to a customer, but will only send PDFs. When converting to PDF the hyperlink does not work any longer.
    To make the behaviour in Word one must open the embedded Excel object to the specific sheet and then copy the specific cell in question. In Word choose Paste as Hyperlink. Press Alt+F9 and then change HYPERLINK to hyperLINK. Press Alt+F9. Edit the Settings of the Hyperlink and change the Text to Display.
    Is there a way to do this with Acrobat 10? The plus side would be that the Excel document would not be embedded in Word although it would still need the Document ID of the Excel file in the portfolio. Futhermore, the Word document won't be included in the portfolio.

    While Acrobat cannot pass opening parameters to non-PDF files it can do so for PDF (under specific circumstances).
    See the "Parameters for Opening PDF Files" document at:

  • Export specific Excel cells to Access

    I'm putting together a submission form in excel which will update a database in access.
    I'm currently trying to use a macro on the submit button to do it but and while i understand the majority of it im not sure how to establish the connection through the macro.
    Essentially im a VBA n00b and haven't completed a project like this before now.
    So i guess my question is how would i go about establishing this through an excel based Macro?
    This is my code for submitting the data into Access
    rs.Open Sql, cn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
    With rs
    .Fields("Date").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 1).Text)
    .Fields("Agent").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 2).Text)
    .Fields("Request").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 3).Text)
    .Fields("Date1").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 4).Text)
    .Fields("Date2").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 5).Text)
    .Fields("Start").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 6).Text)
    .Fields("End").Value = Format(Cells(50, 7).Value, "hh:mm")
    .Fields("RDO").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 8).Text)
    .Fields("Call Type").Value = Trim(Cells(50, 9).Text)
    End With
    If rs.State = adStateOpen Then rs.Close
    If cn.State = adStateOpen Then cn.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set cn = Nothing
    MsgBox "Your request has been submitted." & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & "Thanks...", vbOKOnly, "John Smith"
    On Error Resume Next
    Call Email
    End Sub
    But what needs to go before it to establish the connection?
    Also how would i find any SQL addresses required for the connection to be made?
    Please help!

    I believe the following forum is more appropriate to place your question. If you agree, let me know to move the question to that forum.

    Hi Chandran i followed you steps regarding  to upload excel sheet data to webdynpro table.
    but iam not get clarity how to do this step.
    Note : You cannot Read the Content from the excel file directly
    First You Have to copy that file to the Server,

  • Convert contents of a formatted excel cell to HTML format

    Hi All,
    Background: I am writing a script that uploads some test cases written in excel into Quality Center. For those who are familiar with the QC Excel Addin, this script would do a pretty similar job except for reducing
    the steps involved. I'm using Office 2007 running on Win 7 Pro.
    Need: I have a situation where the contents of a formatted excel cell need to be converted to HTML tags representing the same formattin in the excel cell. For example a cell containg the text: "Verify
    if help topics in Macro section are
    hyperlinked" should be converted to
    <html><b>Verify</b> if help topics in <u>Macro section</u> are <i>hyperlinked</i></html> 
    Question: Is there an inbuilt function in Excel/VBAn accomplish this? Or is a macro required? Any other ideas to accomplish this?
    Note: Whatever used for converting (an inbuilt function or a macro) should support new line characters and colors.
    Any help or redirection to solutions is appreciated.
    Thanks, John.

  • SSIS Import Excel Cell Properties

    I'd like to use SSIS to import MS Excel Properties - e.g. Color for each cell. 
    Does anyone have an example of this - values are straightforward, but cell properties are not.
    Thank you,

    Thank you - this is a great start.
    The above is a great example using SSIS  Script Component - and part of this concept should work. If I use it like it's written I will need about 3600 variables for a 60column by 60 row spreadsheet.
    I'm wondering if I can do a loop and If clause to retrieve only those cell references- that specifically meet cell color fill criteria (ie Interior.ColorIndex=7) and put those Cell References either in an array (probably easiest) which can be parsed
    later from SQL Server.
    This is what I have come up with sans loop/array.
    ' Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Component
    ' Write scripts using Microsoft Visual Basic 2008.
    ' ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.
    Imports System
    Imports System.Data
    Imports System.Math
    Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper
    Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper

    <CLSCompliant(False)> _

    Public Overrides Sub PreExecute()
    ' Add your code here for preprocessing or remove if not needed
    End Sub
    Public Overrides Sub PostExecute()
    ' Add your code here for postprocessing or remove if not needed
    ' You can set read/write variables here, for example:
    ' Me.Variables.MyIntVar = 100
    End Sub
    Public Overrides Sub CreateNewOutputRows()
    Dim oExcel As Object = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Dim FileName As String
    FileName = Variables.FileName
    Dim oBook As Object = oExcel.Workbooks.Open(FileName)
    Dim oSheet As Object = oBook.Worksheets(1)
    ' This will take too many rows.
    Output0Buffer.Address = oSheet.Range("B4").Interior.ColorIndex

  • VBA Script Errors on Excel Cell containing a Formula

    I'm writing a VBA script.  When running the script I have a varible being set from a Excel cell containing a formula.  The script errors on this staement.  See below
            BlockSize = ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 ' DID Block Size
    Cell O10 contains "=VLOOKUP(A1,SP_DID_Range!A:Q,10,FALSE)"
    The above formula produces the value 20
    What I receive is the formula instead of value the formula produces.
    I am trying retrieve the value and use it in another formula.  So "BlockSize" should equal 20 not "=VLOOKUP(A1,SP_DID_Range!A:Q,10,FALSE)"

    If you want the A1-style formula, use the Formula property.
    If you want the R1C1-style formula, use the FormulaR1C1 property.
    If you want the value, use the Value property:
        BlockSize = Range("O10").Value
    Note that it isn't necessary to select the cell.

  • Help needed with referencing single Excel cells and formatting resulting text

    In InDesign CS5 I am putting together a 20pp catalogue of about 200 products. The plan is to have the product information, SKU code, quantity etc fixed, but have the prices (there are two i.e. pack price and individual price) being linked to an Excel spreadsheet. This is so that the prices can be updated in the Excel file and the InDesign file will pull the new prices through. In case you are wondering why I don't pull the whole set of information through, this is because there are a lot of copywriting changes done to the information once it's in InDesign - it's only going to be the prices that will be updated.
    I am planning on having two single cell tables in their own text frame, duly formatted with cell style, table style and paragraph style for the two price variables. This I am then going to have to repeat 200 times making sure I link to the next row down in Excel. This is going to be a hideous task but I see know way of modifying the cell in InDesign to point it to the next row in Excel. That's my first problem.
    My second problem is this. In the Excel sheet, the prices are formatted as UK currency and are therefore like this...
    What I will require is once I import that data (and refresh the data via a newly saved Excel file) is that the prices end up like this...
    So if the value is lower than £1.00 it needs a trailing 'p' added  and the leading zero and '£' sign stripped off. If the value is lower than £0.10 it also needs the zero after the decimal point stripping off.
    Then formatting wise, the '£' sign needs to be superscripted and the same for the 'p'. This I am assuming could be done via GREP?
    In summary, can anyone help with the first task of referecing the Excel cells on a cell by cell basis, given that it is the same cell column each time, but the next row down, and also point me in the right direction of the price formattting issues.
    Any help will be gratefully received.

    I would do this:
    Create on line with the formatting.
    Export as InDesign tagged text (TXT)
    Read out these tags
    In Excel exists a function to connect text from several cells and predfined text, there connect the content from cells with the paragraph styling tags. Do it in a seperate sheet. (Better would be to use a database like Access, there you can link your Excel sheet).
    Export this sheet as txt file
    Place this sheet as tagged text (there is an option in one of the sialog boxes).
    In preferences  < file handling you can specify that Tablecalculation Sheets and text is not embedded but linked, turn it on.

  • Excel cell border disappears when converting to PDF (continued)

    Continuing from http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b4dd40 which was archived already.
    I too am getting the problem in which Excel cell borders are disappearing from cells with a background color. Lowering the resolution to 300 dpi does not help.
    The borders are definitely disappearing. Printing the worksheet from Excel 2003 prints the cell borders. Printing the worksheet from the resulting PDF does not. I created the PDF using the Create PDF macro that Acrobat 9 adds to Excel.
    Here's the really odd thing: it only affects two adjacent cells in the same (first) row of the worksheet. Other cells with the same background color in the same columns or the same row are not affected, nor are the cells in other rows or columns.
    Copying similar cells that don't have the problem, then re-converting doesn't help.

    I just tested inserting a blank row 1 in the spreadsheet, moving the problem cells to C2 and D2, but the borders still disappear from those cells.
    Restoring back to C1 and D1, I note that if I copy the cell formats to other worksheets, the problem cells lose their borders on all worksheets.
    I then tested what happened if I specified No Color for C1 and D1. The problem transferred to cells G1 and H1, which had then become the first adjacent cells with background color.
    Restoring the background color to C1 and D1 transferred the problem back to C1 and D1, and removed the problem from G1 and H1.
    Next, I gave cell A1 a background color of white. This removed the problem from cells C1 and D1, and gave it to A1.
    Finally, I turned accessibility tagging off and that made the problem go away. However, I need tagging as we must post accessible documents.
    So now I have a consistent way to describe the problem: cell borders disappear from the first set of contiguous cells with background colors if tagging is turned on. I'm going to file this as a bug.

  • Expand Range referencing an excel cell

    I am creating an input schedule that should sort with a certain property.
    This property is derived from the entity's id eg.. S_Property, I use excel to remove the 'S_' and just return the word 'Property' which is then a property which I filter the account structure.
    Is it possible to reference an excel cell, eg =A20 in the memberset part of the expand range?
    I do the excel formula to remove the S_ in cell A20, as property="Property", and now I just want to reference cell A20 in the memberset part.
    If I reference the cell, all members in my account dimension gets returned. When I physically type in the words then it works fine, but when I reference the cell, then it doesn't work.. Is there another way I can get the value in cell A20 then into the memberset part?
    Hope someone can help.

    Dear Henry Pieters,
    I just give you the information that the memberset cell can refer the certain cell which you mentioned. Please you have to change the format cell of memberset is "General" and the reference cell is "Text". Maybe you can use the Ms.Excel function TEXT( ) or using single quotation mark (').
